I'm attempting to create a MS Query to return data from a SQL database based on a value from a cell in Excel. I have actually successful accomplished this, but only for 1 row. I cant figure out how to get it to copy-down to other rows.


I've created a connection as follows:

2016-12-05_12-08-30.jpg



Notice that the SQL statement includes a parameter. The parameter is set to point to a specific cell:
2016-12-05_12-14-13.jpg



I guess this makes sense as I'm only looking to return 1 value per row:The problem is that I have multiple lines to return values for. How do I return a value per row for multiple rows?

I've tried changing the cell reference in the Parameters dialog box (image #2 above), but this does not work as the Excel Table is designed to grow dynamically. Is it possible to have Query several values based on different rows within Excel?

Lock one reference in a formula
Need 1 part of a formula to always point to the same range? use $ signs: $V$2:$Z$99 will always point to V2:Z99, even after copying

Apparently, I'm not able to include screenshots. Are images actually supposed to show? In the Testing area, the link appeared but not the picture. Here, there is just an icon.
